    my son who is 16 has visual snow,has had this for most of his life. he does not get migraines-headachs but lives with this condition, yesturday, he told me that the movement that he see's had increased to what he says 300%. he see's movement in color and as specs of light. He does say that his vision is clear , not the normal snow you would expect. Is there anything that can help him? It would be nice for him to see what we see without the snow effect. He just had his eye exam and xrays-passedwith flying colors
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    I must admit ignorance in regard to visual snow. Some cursory research shows that it has been associated with atypical migraine headache and some other neurological issues.

    I assume that the comprehensive eye exam was performed by an ophthalmologist familiar with this issue. If this were one of my family members, I would seek the expertise of an experienced neuro-ophthalmologist.
